Naturally Calm an Anxious Dog
How To Naturally Calm an Anxious or Stressed Dog
Does your dog get
anxious during a thunderstorm, car rides, or at the vet? Many dogs struggle
with anxiety at different levels. There are several treatments for dog anxiety
and stress, but the hard part is finding natural treatments that work. Dogs can
become destructive, scared, and noisy if you don't resolve this issue. In this
article we will discuss the various methods available for natural dog calming.
Treatments come in different forms, such as supplements, aromatherapy, and
pressure treatments. But before you go out and find a treatment for anxiety,
there is a solution you could try at home without purchasing anything. Many
dogs today are being left at home all day in a room or crate without space to
move around. They have a high level of built up energy that needs to be used.
You could take a walk with your dog in the morning or evening to expend some of
that energy. If walking is not for you, try a fetch toy and train your dog to
bring it back to you after each throw. These methods may solve the problem and
wear your dog out enough to take the edge off.
